LaTeX Sup­port For Fu­tura Fonts From Adobe As Used By No Starch Press Ver­sion 1.3 2008/03/20 This pack­age pro­vides met­ric files and LaTeX sup­port for Fu­tura fonts from Adobe. It has ev­ery­thing you need to type­set in this font - ex­cept the font it­self, of course. There are sev­eral ver­sions of the fonts avail­able, dif­fer­ent by the ver­sion year. This pack­age pro­vides sup­port for fonts as used by No Starch Press, http://www.nos­tarch.com. To pre­vent a clash with sup­port of a newer ver­sion by W. A. Sch­midt, the font­name |pfv| is used in­stead of the stan­dard |pfu|. INSTALLATION First, you need to pur­chase the fonts them­selves: the pfb files are not in­cluded in the pack­age. If you got the fonts from No Starch Press, do not re­name the pfb files. How­ever, if there are up­per­case let­ters in your file names, down­case them. If you ob­tained the fonts from an­other source, re­name the files ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­men­ta­tion (fu­tu­rans.pdf). If your TeX sys­tem is TDS-com­pli­ant, in­stall the files into $TEXMF/fonts/type1/adobe/fu­tu­rans. Then down­load http://ctan.tug.org/in­stall/fonts/ps­fonts/adobe/fu­tu­rans.tds.zip and un­zip this file in $TEXMF. Add +pfv.map to the con­fig­u­ra­tion files of dvips, pdf­tex and your dvi pre­viewer. Run up­dmap and tex­hash pro­grams to up­date the con­fig­u­ra­tion files and file names database. The in­cluded style fu­tu­rans.sty makes your de­fault Sans Serif fam­ily. NOTE The files were gen­er­ated us­ing fontinst 1.927. CHANGES v1.1 Added light let­terspaced, bold com­pressed and heavy com­pressed fonts heavy com­pressed fonts v1.2 Changed scales for let­terspaced and com­pressed fonts v1.3 Added medium, bold and heavy let­terspaced fonts
